How to compute AIC from ASReml fitted model on R?

I am using Asreml module with R. I fitted a mixed linear model and I used the fitted object to compute Akaike Information Criterion using the function AIC() of R: this does not work out.
How can I compute AIC? If this is not possible, how can I extract the numbers of parameters estimated for a model to calculate the AIC by hand (I don't habe problem for extracting the loglikelihood)?
